    I drink red, mainly Victorian Pinot but I'm thinking I'd like to explore some nice Riesling. Any tips? I'm happy to pay upwards of $25 for a nice drop.

    Drooling. 33 weeks pregnant and would lick spilt wine off the table right now I am so desperate 😂.

    Agree that Pinot Gris/Grigio is worth trying but don't buy it too cheap as some of the cheaper brands are yuk. Mornington Peninsula is a good climate for Pinot Gris so anything from there worth trying.

    A Hunter valley Semillon is also nice, although a little sharper than the sem blancs it's quite dry but refreshing. Barossa also produce some good semillons.

    I am a huge fan of Pinot Noir (especially the tassie ones like Stefano Lubiana, Tamar Ridge, Josef Chromy). The only red I'll drink in summer.

    Ok enough of that I'm drooling all over my office desk.

    Try a Riesling.

    Capital Wines does a great one called The Whip. There's also a good Jim Barry one as well called The Lodge.

    Also Ad Hoc Wallfower (or maybe The Wallflower).

    They are all dry and fruity. Mixing the SB up with Riesling and PG this summer has made me appreciate the taste of an SB when I go back to it.

    Just a word of caution. Do NOT get the Giesen Riesling. It is sweet and disgusting.

    Why hello Nancy

    I wondered why the name Jim Barry was familiar - then I remembered I went to a fancy dinner & matched wine evening featuring Jim Barry wines last year.

    The Riesling was lovely (in fact, it was the only wine I tasted that really spoke to me).

    I bored with malborough sav blanc recently and changed to pinot gris too. The Grant Burge Pinot Gris is good, and easy drinking. Also think about a rose` if you're in for a summery drink. Or a red bubbles. Mmmmm....wine. ...

    Cant go past a good rose imo. I LOVE Rockford Alacante and Woodstock Grenache Rose'

    For a different sav blanc I like the wicks estate sav blanc and NZ Secret stone.

    Also, avoid the Brown's brothers crouchen reisling- very very sweet and syrupy.

    Oh yes. It's heaven. Much more subtle than the NZ sauvs.
